Circa 1760.

Dimensions : 76 H x 150 W x 75 D cm.

This Louis XV desk has long been part of the antique furniture of the Comédie Française. A first trace dates from 1884, when the Treasurer of the time used it for his desk. It then appears

in the 1977 inventory, when put on stage in Marivaux’s False Confessions, directed by Michel Etcheverry in a set designed by Olivier Etcheverry.

This antique desk appears to be the exact copy of an 18th century design. Composed entirely in harmonious curves gently forming ogee outlines, the taut lines of the legs are in the S-scroll similar to the legs of a console table by André-Charles Boulle. This writing-table speaks of its noble origins, inspired as they are by the work of

the master cabinet makers creating

the Louis XV style at its zenith.

The graceful simplicity of the unit limits its sculpted ornamentation to only the discreet bronze-work on the feet and in the key plates of the three drawers.
